The Wawasee Area Conservancy Foundation (WACF) was formed in 1991 to anticipate, seek out and resolve threats to the water quality in the Wawasee area watershed. The Foundation is dedicated to promoting education, encouraging best management practices to reduce erosion and acquiring wetlands and endangered shoreline areas. Now in our 25th year, our efforts have resulted in the acquisition and protection of over 10 miles of shoreline and 47 wetland areas totaling over 829 acres.
On Saturday June 4 from 9 AM to 11 AM, our first 2016 Lake Talk & Eats program will focus on the importance of native plants to the environment. Martha Ferguson (Riverview Nursery) will discuss how native plants help our watershed and Matthew Linn (Cardno Nursery) will show us how to design a rain garden. Native plants will be available for sale from Myers Landscape Nursery, Cardno Native Plant Nursery, Riverview Nursery and Clayton Garden Center. Join us on Saturday at the Ruddell Pavilion located at the WACF Levinson-LaBrosse Lakes & Wetlands Education Center (one mile south of Syracuse on SR 13).
This is a free event and a light brunch will be served!
